Frameworks for Tourism Research
By D Pearce, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
Frameworks are the foundation of good scholarship. They structure, organize and communicate research, underpin individual studies and shape the field of study as a whole. This book provides the first comprehensive and systematic review and critique of frameworks for tourism research. Theoretical, conceptual, analytical and integrative frameworks are all covered in detail, with the features, use, strengths and limitations of each form discussed and illustrated using a wide range of examples and applications across the field of tourism studies.
Academic libraries, upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students in tourism, industry personnel and policy makers.
